    Benro MAC008ABR0E reviews

    MAC008ABR Active Series Aluminum Monopod Kit with Ballhead is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good build quality at this low price Don't let the white finish color fool you. IMO, it's not a cheap monopod. I ordered it simply because it's a Benro and the included tilt-able ball head (br0e) is almost $20 value. The received product exceeds my expectation. Build quality is very good at this low price. It's sturdy enough to handle 3 lbs or even more. My camera body and lens is just over 2 lbs. Flip locks are not flimsy either. The ball head is unscrewable. Without the ball head, it's about 16" in length and definitely on compact side. Hope it could be taller, so I can shoot at eye level. Besides, it'd be better if the foam grip can be a little bit longer. Don't forget to register your product to extend the warranty to 5yr.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic ball head monopod I've used for both my cell phone and DSLR and it's held both nicely. It's good having the ball head on the monopod - less bulk than a full tripod, but with the adjustability of the ball head to get that perfect angle. Movement on the ball is not smooth - you won't want to try to use it for pan or tilt in video, but it locks down solid and keeps even a T3I with telephoto lens in place. Worth the money until I upgrade to something absurd.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak design. Mine broke within 20 minutes. One of the telescopic legs came loose. The thin little plastic retainer broke into small pieces and now the unit is unusable. If not for the weak legretainers this would be a great monopod. If you do buy one I suggest you carefully extend the telescopic legs instead of flipping them out like I did.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginners. light but steady monopod. Easy to carrie and great for stability on the go. I personally need a new head because I already have a base that I want to use, but the one that comes with it is good and its easy to replace if needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality I purchased this monopod as a back up to my primary one. I'm very impressed with the quality of the device. It has quickly become my go-to monopod.
